Since then, distros have done the work necessary to use the linker
path that was agreed, making changes in gcc and glibc packages. Some
people went with the initial patches that were proposed for the sake
of urgency, e.g. Ubuntu built using these initial patches for their
12.04 release. Given the all-party agreement on the meat of the
problem (the linker path itself), the finer details of the final
patches didn't matter so much. Others (Fedora) wanted to wait for the
patches to be accepted upstream before accepting them. That's also
understandable and reasonable. However, those patches have been
upstream for several weeks now and it seems nobody has cared enough to
pull them into Fedora yet.


We pulled in the glibc as soon as it went upstream, but for some reason the glibc patch did not actually activate. We're looking into it.

FYI, if you support prelink it is likely you will need to add a patch there as well.
